Musical note: the double thump at 02:03 might be the Wurlitzer player trying to clear the fuel lines.Or somebody giving the truck driver the universal signal to start up and drive off - which he is evidently too entranced to do.Or a couple of corpses hitting the deck in readiness for a period Detective to turn up, root around and then accuse everybody in the library.
I'm not saying that everybody who is in the library at the time the period Detective springs his trap, is going to get accused.I should have said, "somebody".Somebody who cold-bloodedly murdered two Wurlitzer players who were trying to clear the fuel lines with a couple of taps from the edges of their well-polished patent leather shoes.
Col. Charles de Laet Waldo Sibthorp: Why do you say, well-polished?Poirot: Because the perfectly polished shell of a boot-toe was discovered at the scene of the crime. Who but a military man would polish his boots to such perfection?
Admiral Sir Reginald Aylmer Ranfurly Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax: But no military man of any experience would use a clear lacquer to finish his boot-toes, precisely because such a subterfuge would be discovered at the first squaaaaaad-SHUN.
x2 Common-or-Garden Wurlizer Players: We've got the power up again, ready to go when you are.
Poirot: You may all leave the library for a while.
Nor am I saying that everybody who is not in the library at the time is necessarily guilty.Mind you, who is innocent? And of what?
A most excellent strategy to boost comment count Mr C.
Cunning is my middle name.Or something beginning with C anyways.
